New Bus/Practice time for Wednesday and Friday, Jan 18, 20.

Due to the Exam schedule this week we are changing the practice time.

12:00 bus to Pineland Wednesday Jan 18 - Practice will be over around 2:30pm.

Thursday day off, but get out and do something like a low level ski, walk or jog for 30 minutes and stretch.

12:00 Bus to Pineland Friday Jan 20 - Practice will be over around 2:30pm.

Saturday Jan 21 - Practice at Pineland 9:00 - 11:30am. No Bus, meet at Pineland.

Ski Room Doors Left Opened

The outside doors to the ski room have been left propped open when no one is there.
Please do not leave the doors propped open as this is a safety and security issue.

If the doors are found open again without anyone there we have to change the way we use the ski room.
Please check the door if you are the last one at the ski room.

We know the room is not the best situation but it is working pretty well so far.
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Saturday Leavitt race

The race is still on as of Thursday night. Running orders and final decision on the race will be posted on Maine High School Skiing Friday.

We will try to wax both classic (for Saturday) and skate (for Monday) skis Friday after practice.

For some of you Saturday may be a double pole race depending on the terrain around the Leavitt high school.

Bring Running shoes for Friday's practice.

We have a


                Looking ahead to Monday’s relay race at Stark’s:  The weather actually looks to be in our favor and should be fast skiing!
                Skate – 3.93k per leg, map attached.  Same relay course as in the past, not a full 5k, but challenging and good spectating.

                2 girls teams and 2 boys teams per school (4 skiers per team).  Everyone else will be in the individual race.  We limit the field to keep the day moving – this has worked well in the past.

                Boys start at 11:00

                Girls 12:10

                Boys Individual Mass Start at 1:15

                Girls Individual Mass Start at 1:20

Holiday camp 2016 time trial results and race season

Elysha and I would like to thank the Freeport ski team and chaperones for another great holiday ski camp. It was fun and very educational being with everyone for 3 days. :)

We hit it just right as it started snowing right after we arrived in Jackson.
The 2 foot snow storm and waking up to no power Friday just added to the adventure.

The race season starts  this week with the 1st WMC race on Wed and Telstar Relays on Saturday.
Now is the time to be focused on getting your sleep, eating well and making sure you train when we are supposed to and rest on the days off. Let's show the other teams what Freeport Nordic is able to accomplish.

Here are the results of the time trial at Great Glen. Good job everyone. Let me know if you think there is an error.

Ski Camp Update

Happy Holidays.

In case you want to know where the ski team will be practicing, we decided on the following to reduce driving and increase skiing.
Thursday we will drive up to Jackson Nordic center. We will ski till 4pm at Jackson Nordic and then head up to Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch.

Friday we will ski all day at Great Glen Nordic Center at the base of Mt Washington, 5 mins from the lodge.

Saturday we will ski at Jackson Nordic Center on the way home.

I expect to be home between 5 and 6pm Saturday evening.
It looks like we are heading to the right area with the prediction of 16 to 22 inches of snow.
